Sorry for the down-time kanina, I've sorted it out, everything should be back to normal.
Hi All, I hope everyone is well and also your family. As a way to extend help during this time of crisis, Visa Consort in partnership with Pinoy AU, would like to offer further reduced rate (for a limited period) to anyone who would wish to engage a migration agent service. If you have conducted your research, you know that their rate is one of the most affordable in the market. Please click here for more details about the offering.
Welcome to the New and Upgraded Pinoy AU Forum! We have only updated a couple of times since 2010. Apology it took some time. Some of the features are still being migrated. Please feel free to report here or email me at [email protected] if you will encounter any issues. Thank you.

    isa pa pong post.

    PR ako dito sa WA. ano ang options na makuha ko yung sister ko dito- mas magandang tanong ay kung paano ko ba sya makukuha dito para maging PR din sya... mas ok kasi benefits ng PR kesa international student.

    meron ang BP dito sa Perth?

    thank u po ulit sa magiging response nyong lahat.

    @021607 para po bang 'student loan' yan sa U.S.? Yun bang subsidised yung tuition para makapag-aral? If so, that's a neat benefit of being a PR hehe

    We have different programs for nurses, no need IELTS & cheap tuition. Call 501-2822 & look for Ella.

    Wtf!! Ielts will still be required by aphra and anmac later on.. Your nursing program if it is even that sounds super fishy!!!

    Is that accredited by aphra??

    That is what i am afraid of in these type of forums people who are advertising their services but cant be checked if it is legit or not.. Walang check and balance.

    To start.. Just go the aphra or anmac websites. Yan ang regulatory bodies ng nursing here. Everything is there..;)

    This Ella from FirstEC migration consultancy called me up and said I am qualified for an Austalian visa, which is visa 476. Apparently they contacted almost all 2011 and 2012 engineering graduates from UP. They were charging the following:

    Firstec Fee: 80,000 petot
    Embassy and lawyer fee: 132,000 petot

    That's a lot of money, considering how easy the application is. Good thing I lodged my application on my own.

    They should be banned from the forum because they will be preying of fellow pinoys na hindi mahilig mag google and dapat i spoonfeed.. Easy to apply in au kasi lahat nasa websites lng nila. Nasa google lahat.. No need yang mga consultancy na provides loans pero parang 5/6 naman ang singgil later on.

  • 021607021607 SydneyPosts: 84Member
    @LokiJr . Even better than "student loan", free totally ang tuition ($20-30K). We are paying $6K (student contribution) for the entire year.

    hi! ask ko lang po sa mga naglodge ng 457 online here in Manila. gano kataga ang processing? Naglodge kasi ako june 7 2013 until now wala pa ko case officer :(
    Mabilis lang po. Nurse po kayo? Iba iba din kasi ang length of processing ng 457. As it is, case-to-case basis siya. I'm not sure if meritorious or depende sa CO ang processing time. Any time from a couple of weeks, to few months, I reckon.

    Also, depends on whether complete ang requirements uploaded and medicals mo hindi referred to their Medical Officer. I've read in this forum somewhere na yung iba, visa grant agad na hindi na nila nakikilala CO.

    Goodluck!

    Hindi po, pero I'm on a 457 din tulad niyo. Mabilis lang ang processing ng 457 generally. Kaso, hindi ko masasagot regarding bridging program eh.

    Hopefully meron dito makapag-input, makasagot ng tanong niyo. :)

    @aila1208 nadine and me both on 457 but nadine is a m.d. here in au and im a nurse here in au from nz:) i lodged my application from nz took about 1 month if im not mistaken. I did not take the bridging cause automatic if nz r.n. = au r.n na din:)

    I meant the timelines are not updates yung nasa baba ng mga posts... :) we've both been here in au for half a year or almost a year na bah... I think u are basing ur questions sa timelines. Hindi yun updated ang TIMELINES.. Hindibsi nadine hindi updated. Hehehe;)

    Pasensya nadine just to clear the confusion... ;)

    Hello ulit!

    456 is business short term, while 457 is business long term. Ilang months po validity ng 456? Yung 457 kasi is 4 years typically. Sa pagkakaintindi ko, dun pa lang mag-iiba na health requirements. Also, nung 456 ka, hindi ka pa nurse nun, ano po? In 457, you will be workingg na kumbaga as a RN in a health institution.

    If may CO ka na, you can email your CO directly para ma-clarify. If wala pa, pwede ka pa rin mag email sa DIAC. May email yan posted somewhere in the webiste. Pero yun nga, mabilis lang 457 as soon as matapos na medicals, as long as wala naman major health problems and andyan lahat ng documents.

    Goodluck!

    @li_i_ren, way kurat! :D

    medyo busy sguro si @li_i_ren...

    my opinion, kung may 4 yrs work exp ka nmn as nurse, bkt di ka mag bridging or conversion program..

    if your ultimate objective is to get a work visa or PR visa after, then studying aged care course might not be the best option... wala ang aged care sa SOL/CSOL, so mahirap ma-sponsor ng employer or hindi pwedeng mag apply ng PR visa...

    read from page 1 of this thread... paulit ulit ang sinasabi nila..
